Press Release: Queen + Adam Lambert Will Rock Moscow
Having last week announced a special one-off UK concert performing with Adam Lambert at the Sonisphere Festival, Knebworth on July 7, legendary rock band Queen has announced it will play an additional earlier date with the singer when Queen and Lambert appear at Moscow’s Olympic Arena on June 30th.
These two shows are the only concerts presently planned for Queen and Lambert in 2012.
Queen band members Brian May and Roger Taylor met Lambert during the finals of American Idol Season 8 in May 2009 where Lambert joined the band to perform We Are The Champions.
Since then the band and Lambert have repeatedly hinted at a future collaboration, most recently with Queen’s Roger Taylor telling Billboard Magazine “"He (Adam)has grown into a really great performer with an astonishing voice with a range that's great. We would like to work with him again. There's nothing signed just yet but …it could be very exciting."
